791: (241/365) Flower Tessellation

Posted by wonko on August 29, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, flower, geometry |

Browsing a MiniNeo eZine that I follow, I noticed a rather interesting looking hexagonal flower and thought it worth a try: You triangle grid a hexagon into 16ths, then put a hex twist in the middle, then add the swing-back on petals and tidy up the tessellation to make a swirl.

787: (237/365) Daffy Down Dilly

Posted by wonko on August 25, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, nature |

Today (August 25) is Daffodil Day, daffodils being the icon associated with cancer awareness and fundraising for an eventual cure. You can get involved, donate or buy badges and sponsored bunches of flowers to show your support: This seems to be a traditional model (sorry, I have yet to identify the designer) but is related […]

786: (236/365) Beth Johnson’s Hex Owl

Posted by wonko on August 24, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I cannot believe I have not tried this before: A lovely hexagonal tessellation in one corner of a hexagon becomes the fluffy tummy, collapsing the body makes for lovely eyes and a pair of crenellated wings.

662: (112/365) Spiral Corrugation

Posted by wonko on April 22, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, machine |

Origami seems to be the new Materials Engineering black, being considered a contemporary alternative approach to fabrication and structure: I was reading an article on deploying large solar arrays in space. This problem is not unique – everything taken into space must be small at launch so it can fit in a rocket.

Folding Algorithms – Sato Rose

Posted by wonko on January 20, 2014 in blarg, flower, geometry |

Much of Origami is algorithmic (algorithm = procedural solution to a problem). A rabbit ear is an algorithm, one knows how to fold it on a corner – double rabbit ear is the same solution, folded two simultaneously. Petal fold is also a standard maneuver which got me thinking of the Sato Rose algorithm. I […]

238: Daffodil Day

Posted by wonko on August 26, 2011 in blarg, flower |

In Australia, August 26 this year is nominated as “Daffodil Day”: We celebrate the lives of those brave people who have fought cancer in all it’s forms – to do so we use a flower, the fragile symbol of hope and beauty: I made a white one, then folded 4 in colour and scattered then […]

95: Star Puff tesselations

Posted by wonko on April 5, 2011 in geometry |

I am fairly new to box pleating andĀ tessellatedĀ patterns but this one caught my eye and I had to try it: Oddly, it works on 120 degree angles, so a hexagon is perfect as a starter. I would like to say it was all neat and went to plan, but the individual “triangle twists” are not […]
